President Obama tries to increase exports to improve our economy so the Republucans try to shut down the bank that makes loans for exports. That says it all.

It is interesting that you have learned to type, considering you can't grasp the idea that when Obama blocked drilling on all government lands and has cut permit applications by 70%, while increasing the red tape, that it wouldn't have a direct reflection between the supply and the demand of the price of oil. I suggest remedial first grade for you.

"The Ex-Im Bank, which Franklin Roosevelt created in 1934 by executive order, provides loans, guarantees and insurance for domestic exporters in order to level the trade playing field—it is essentially a job creation tool, since it finances sales of US exports to overseas buyers. Every industrialized nation has a similar export credit agency.

The agency is funded by industry fees, not taxpayer money, but Congress does have some supervision over the agency, including setting a loan limit for the Ex-Im Bank. That loan authorization expires in seventy-seven days, at which point the agency will cease to function absent Congressional action.

Far-right Republicans in the House and Senate, and pushed by the powerful Club for Growth, are contemplating not raising that limit—and perhaps junking the agency altogether. As Greg Sargent at the Washington Post’s Plum Line noted this week, it’s becoming a huge wedge issue for Republicans—the US Chamber of Commerce and many business-oriented Republicans like the agency, but anti-government ideologues do not.

“If we don’t do it, it does open the door for our foreign competitors,” Hochberg said.“Our competitors are simply licking their chops and saying ‘this is great—we’ll be able to come in, steal those sales, and there won’t be an Ex-Im Bank to support those US exporters.’ So while we’re worrying what the [loan limit] number should be, our competitors are very happy watching us in this turmoil.”

For mainly ideological reasons, conservatives argue the Ex-Im Bank is unnecessary government intervention in the marketplace—though, again, every industrialized country does this, so ideological purity on this issue would put American companies at a distinct disadvantage.

House majority leader Eric Cantor wants to raise the limit to only $113 billion, on the condition that President Obama begin negotiations with other countries to unilaterally get rid of export credit agencies. This is pure fantasy, of course. Other Republicans in the Senate, like Jim DeMint and Rand Paul, are raising nonsensical “oversight” issues.

No, he is in love with Boudreaux, Beauregard Boudreaux. He had Boudreaux's initials tattooed on each cheek of his buttocks. When he came in, dropped his pants, and bent over to show Boudreaux what he had done, Beauregard asked him,,,“who is (B)o(B)”. The two of them must be happy all the time. When asked to discribe their relationship LaJimal smiled and said "Tongue in cheek". Just one of those happy memories LaJimal has from his days in the Paris Muslim community.
